Dinner before Longwood Gardens

great food. A very low key restaurant. Felt more like a neighborhood bar inside which was nice. a fun chance to try something different I had the pulled Elk which was like a beef briquette others had the bison burgers. Everything was good, great atmosphere and a large selection of beers

We happened upon this place by chance while in the area for work. I'm very glad we did. The sliced beef brisket sandwich was honestly one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. It was served French dip style with house made kettle chips. Frankly the chips weren't the best but it doesn't matter, the sandwich was off the charts... More

Unusual choices for the area. Bison, Gator, great way to try some new foods without going broke. Nice bar downstairs and a great view in the covered, open air seating on the roof!

Worth the wait. Cheerful pub with a wide variety of beers on tap and in bottles. The buffalo burger was delicious ( ask for carmelized onions ). I had a question about one of the beers and next thing I know, the waitress had several samples for me try ... for free! The bill was a pleasant surprise, as well,... More

We stopped for lunch at this pub in the middle of Kennett Square. Had good drinks and delicious sandwiches in a Irish pub style atmosphere. What’s not to like! Stop by for a pint!

I found this restaurant last summer and went back last week (I'm only in this area once a year). They have specials every day and a Happy Hour menu as well. Also have interesting drinks. A little pricey on the main menu, but hey, it's once a year and it's not as though I can find wild game in my... More

Get the bison burger with spicy pickles. AMAZING perfect German Chocolate cake. Ice cold. Ask for the roof.

This restaurant specializes in exotic meats. The menu had Yak, boar, bison as well as meats found on regular menus. Our server was very friendly and helpful pointing out items in the menu. I tried the bison burger and the other three in my group had regular hamburgers. The bison burger has 97% less fat than a regular burger. I... More

While the menu featured several elk items, I ordered the spinach and baby arugula salad with pear, goat cheese, spiced walnuts and apple balsamic vinegar. The salad was tasty but the walnuts were SPICY. We also sampled a soup/gumbo, which was over-the-top spicy hot. Not to our taste. Before you order, ask the waitress about the spices in the food....

Solid food and an excellent roof deck to take in sunset. The star of our meal was the mushroom appetizer with cranberries, walnuts and demi-glace, over gorgonzola ciabatta. The bacon buffaloaf was also filling and quite good.
